Sunny Splash Of Orchids
Beverley Harper Tinsley
Painting - Watercolor And Graphite
Splashy purple and turquoise give this brilliant yellow orchid watercolor painting a modern, cheerful quality.
I painted these sunny blooms in The Orangery at Denver Botanic Gardens, while sitting in a patch of sunlight on the floor, near the windows. The Orangery is a long glass room filled with the fragrance of citrus plants in flower, and the kind of humidity and brightness we long for here in Colorado in February, which can be very dry and alternately sunny and gloomy, with regular snowstorms. School groups, locals, tourists, horticulturists and botanists, environmentalists and any number of others passed through, stopped to chat and visit and enjoyed the orchid show while the painting was in progress.
Sunny Splash of Orchids is currently priced and available as framed and matted, with a black mat that makes the vibrant colors pop forward and a silver goldish frame that is not easily described. For photos of the original painting as framed, contact the artist directly. Or better yet, go see it in person at the incomparable St. Mark's Coffee House in Denver, Colorado, where it will be on display along with many of my other works, for the months of March and April 2014.
Orchid lovers and collectors really know their plants, and I would not dare to guess which species this one is, but welcome comments on identification from those in the know. Also, if anybody can think of a better title to suggest for the painting, I am entertaining all options.
